What you need to know about the potential impacts of Bill 64

  • Local school divisions will disappear - The Red River Valley School Division will be dissolved, and our schools will become part of a 4500+ student geographical region under the centralized power of the Provincial Education Authority.
  • Parental responsibility & workload redefined  With the creation of School Community Councils, parents/guardians will be asked to step into governance/management roles of their child’s school, without any clarity in the legislation about what their actual decision-making authority will be.
  • Support of local businesses in question - Local business owners will need to secure contracts for goods and services related to schools in their community, through the centralized Provincial Education Authority, rather than locally, as they do now.
  • Taxation without representation - Even with the proposed phase-out of education property taxes, as Manitobans, you will continue to pay the taxes, with no elected voice to ensure the money is invested locally.The Education Property Tax Rebate outlines the shift in taxes.
    • The Minister will solely set the education levy.
  • Elimination of your democratic rights - The Board of Trustees of Red River Valley School Division will be eliminated.
    • Decisions about your local school will lie with an appointed Director of Education, who will report to the government-appointed Provincial Education Authority.
